Joseph Hall — Infidelity and Faith…

Infidelity and Faith look both through the same perspective-glass, but at contrary ends.  Infidelity looks through the wrong end of the glass; and therefore, sees those objects near which are afar off, and makes great things little, diminishing the greatest spiritual blessings, and removing far from us threatened evils.  Faith looks at the right end, and brings the blessings that are far off close to our eye, and multiplies God’s mercies, which, in the distance, lost their greatness.
